The Holidays in NYC

Remember your first visit to see the Rockettes? I was 8 and I went on a bus trip - I think with the Girl Scouts - to see the Christmas Spectacular. All I remember is how impressive the theater looked and how the show left me breathless. The lights dimmed and then it was just pure magic for the next 90 minutes.

It sounds like this seasons offering will be more of the same. They have a new director/choreographer Linda Haberman who has tweaked the favorites and added a new number to the show. Added to the Spectacular is a LED screen, new costumes and all the pageantry associated with the season.

"Fog may come in on little cat feet, but when the spirit of Christmas arrives in New York it tap, tap, taps into Radio City Music Hall on the flying feet of 36 Rockettes, the rumbling of mighty Wurlitzers, the carols and hymns of a 40-piece orchestra and the hearty laughter of Kriss Kringle himself." more from the Times
